Headteacher's welcome


Welcome to Meridian Community Primary School and Nursery! 

I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher at such a great school where children, staff, governors and parents work extremely hard and have high expectations of one another.  The wonderful team at Meridian is committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning, achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise to ensure that all students reach their full potential.

At Meridian you will find a friendly, caring and purposeful environment where relationships are built on mutual respect and where all families from the local and wider community in and around Peacehaven are welcomed. 

Our school motto is “Learning for Life” as we all believe that instilling a love of learning and developing different learning skills is vital in preparing children for their future lives.  We want our children to leave Meridian as confident and highly motivated independent learners who are caring and positive citizens.  Our values of respect, honesty, kindness, strength and responsibility are an integral part of school life and support the ethos of the school.

At Meridian the children are at the centre of all that we do and we strive to provide an inclusive, vibrant and exciting curriculum with a wide range of learning experiences to engage and enthuse everyone.  All of which is underpinned by rigorous teaching of reading, writing and mathematics skills to ensure children are ready for each stage of their learning journey.

I hope you enjoy exploring this website and finding out about our school.

If you would like to visit us, please contact the office to arrange an appointment.  I am always happy to show visitors the work of our successful school.
